February 1

ABZU soundtrack available on Steam, FRIDAY 2/3/17!



Happy Wednesday Divers!

As we mentioned yesterday we had something cool coming and here it is, the music of ABZÛ will be available on Steam starting Friday, February 3rd! And to add more good news to the mix, Austin Wintory, the composer for all our music, has been nominated for “Outstanding Achievement in Original Music Composition” in the 20th Annual D.I.C.E. awards! The winners will be announced on February 23, 2017, so stay tuned, we are really pulling for Austin to win.

Just a few factoids about the music…

  • Austin used 7 harpists during one recording session in London.
  • He conducted the world-famous Nashville Scoring Orchestra at Ocean Way Studios in Nashville, TN. The orchestra has also recorded the music for games such as The Last of Us, Call of Duty, Star Wars – The Old Republic, Knights of the Eternal Throne, and Ori and the Blind Forest.
  • In London, he recorded in the Lyndhurst Hall (AIR Studios), was designed in 1880 by the great Victorian architect Alfred Waterhouse (designer of the Natural History Museum).

To celebrate the soundtrack release we will be discounting the game by 50% on Steam through the weekend (2/3-2/6), so if you haven’t purchased yet, this is a great chance to get the game and the album together. We know a lot of you have asked for the soundtrack to be available, and we hope you will enjoy the soundtrack in your daily lives.

Thank you to everyone for your support and happy swimming!


All the best,

Team ABZÛ

About This Game

From the art director of Journey® and Flower®, ABZÛ is a beautiful underwater adventure that evokes the dream of diving.

Immerse yourself in a vibrant ocean world full of mystery and bursting with color and life. Perform fluid acrobatics as the Diver using graceful swimming controls. Discover hundreds of unique species based on real creatures and form a powerful connection with the abundant sea life. Interact with schools of thousands of fish that procedurally respond to you, each other, and predators. Linger in epic seascapes and explore aquatic ecosystems modeled with unprecedented detail. Descend into the heart of the ocean where ancient secrets lie forgotten. But beware, dangers lurk in the depths. "ABZÛ" is from the oldest mythologies; AB, meaning water, and ZÛ, meaning to know. ABZÛ is the ocean of wisdom.
